Psychonaauts Songs For Creatures

Put the headphones on and sprawl in your favorite chair for the full effect of this lanky first full-length from Paul Mogg and Pablo Clements. The pair manages to take a divergent path from the now-familiar crossroads of rock and electronics, only occasionally straying back to the mundane as with the unfortunate Robert Plant-esque moans of "Hot Blood." Mostly, the Psychonauts push forward with steady momentum, referencing the falling drums and scrabbling guitars of ubiquitous influence The Cure, but claiming their own territory through judicious use of effects ("Fear is Real"), and coolly stylish guest vocals ("World Keeps Turning" featuring Jason Rowe).
